THE TROSSACHS NATIONAL PARK
Tree-covered slopes, dramatic mountains and hills, waterfalls and miles of unspoilt countryside are what make this area so magical. With so much to see and do around Forest Hills Hotel & Resort, one visit won't be enough.
Highlands & The Lowlands
The spectacular and varied landscapes within the Park encompass the Highlands and the Lowlands and fall into four distinct areas:
- Loch Lomond, whose narrow northern top features towering mountains on either side – including Ben Lomond – whilst the southern end is broader and more pastoral with a scattering of small islands.
- The Trossachs, also known as “the Highlands in miniature,” offers sparkling lochs, softly ruffled hills, tranquil forests and a collection of villages which lie between Loch Lomond’s eastern shore and the west of Stirling.
- The Argyll Forest, stretching to the north and west of Loch Lomond includes the Arrochar Alps and parts of the Cowal Peninsula.
- And finally, the north-eastern part of the Park, which falls within part of the historic district of Breadalbane, is where you’ll find broad glens and high mountains like Ben More and Ben Lui.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
For hundreds of years, well before the Park was formed, visitors have paid homage to this unique and diverse area of Scotland - including Scottish novelist and poet, Sir Walter Scott, who was so inspired that he wrote his epic poem The Lady of the Lake (1810) after a visit to Lake Katrine.
With walking routes ranging from family rambles to more strenuous hikes or even ascents of the major Munros for the ambitious, plus cycle paths galore and the opportunity to take to the water at every turn, it’s easy to become fully immersed in the glorious scenery and special ambiance of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
The Three Lochs Forest Drive
For days when you just want the landscape to do the hard work, the Three Lochs Forest Drive is the perfect alternative to a day of walking or activities, and the start is only 15 minutes from Forest Hills Resort. You’ll pass three beautiful lochs – Lochan Reòidhte, Loch Drunkie (with a handy picnic spot and parking alongside) and Loch Achray – and if you want to stretch your legs, there are short, simple trails along the way to break the journey. Keep your eyes peeled for woodland and water-based wildlife too!
